Building a Platinum Walk-Friendly Community

In 2011, Seattle was awarded the first ever Platinum Level Walk Friendly Community designation.  Join staff from Seattle and the Walk Friendly Communities program to explore how a comprehensive approach to planning and design, along with enforcement, education, and encouragement strategies, can create safe and vibrant places for people to walk and socialize. Starting from the conference center, we’ll go by monorail to Seattle Center, then walk through Belltown before returning to the conference center on foot. Highlights will include crossing treatments, streetscape improvements, and a discussion of education, encouragement and enforcement strategies.
